Josef Frank gathered many of his print motifs directly from nature while others came from illustrations in his collection of field manuals. He found his inspiration for the Butterfly print, with butterflies, dragonflies and beetles grouped around small ponds and butterflies, in the books Butterflies of America and Insects of America. Josef Frank designed this print in 1943-1945.
